Aussies challenged to be ‘Tough Blokes’ to help kids with cancer

THE Tough Bloke Challenge 2014 – an 8km rope swinging, mud crawling course of 25 obstacles – takes place in NSW on June 28-29 and participants – both men and women – can register at:http://www.toughblokechallenge.com.au

By doing so you can donate to or fundraise for Camp Quality and help to create a better life for children living with cancer.

The event takes place throughout the day at Cataract Scout Park, Appin, NSW and this year for the first time, children’s cancer charity Camp Quality is the main charity beneficiary of the event; participants are encouraged to fundraise for Camp Quality once they’ve registered for the challenge.

The charity runs programs across Australia which build optimism and resilience for families – at hospital, at home, at school – and away from it all at camp.

The course itself is reputed to be one of the most gruelling adventure runs found anywhere in Australia. Endurance-testing obstacles include cross country running, thick mud pits, water crossings, rope shimmying at dizzying heights, crawling in swamp-like trenches covered with barbed wire and through damp, dark concrete tunnels. The final rope-based obstacle is the trickiest, and is called ‘Hell’s Gate.’

Jacqui Greenhaf, Camp Quality’s Fundraising Manager for NSW, said: “The Tough Bloke Challenge can be taken as seriously as you like – as a hellish assault course to test your strength or a fun day out where you walk the entire course and give it your best shot. Either way, you’ll be helping kids whose own strength has been tested by cancer, by helping to fund Camp Quality’s programs which give them and their families an essential break from hospital, stress and intensity.”

If you think you’re tough enough, it’s not too late for tough blokes or tough chicks to register for the event by visiting http://www.toughblokechallenge.com.au
